SH60 Takaka Hill is open all day and all night (24/7), barring further closures due to more slips or incidents. Drivers will be able to safely use the one-way sections with the aid of manual traffic management (Stop/Go) and/or with traffic lights. Electronic signs at either side of the hill will update people of any delays or significant issues on the hill.
“We need to remind everyone that there are narrow sections and all drivers, riders and road users need to be vigilant through this winter until the road is back to its more usual width,” says Frank Porter, Manager System Management.
